For Leila, Seriously Sexy Boudoir's resident shutterbug, sexiness isn't about how much skin a woman shows, but how she shows it. During one- to two-hour boudoir and maternity boudoir sessions in a private, female-only studio, her all-women team guides guests through each pose. Whether with a suggestively arched back, pouty lips, or a flirtatious wink, the team works to ensure that every image has a sultry touch devoid of redeye, which only serves to seduce Terminators. For an additional fee, Leila provides professional hair and makeup work, top-notch lighting, impressive sets, and appropriate wardrobe suggestions to enhance the experience even more.
Afterward, Leila invites clients back for an unveiling, where they can review every image and examine samples of products that can preserve their favorite shots. Leila digitally retouches each picture in her digital darkroom before creating prints, high-resolution images, or photo albums.

Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
To Angela Smith, the entire Yorktown area is a photography studio. A specialist in natural-light photography, Angela conducts outdoor, on-location shoots, typically at locales of her clients’ choosing. The natural process allows her subjects to pose at venues of personal significance, such as the site of a marriage proposal or the site of a taffy-factory accident that left them attached together. During shoots, Angela often eschews conventional poses in favor of candid, active shots, encouraging her clients to relax and have fun while in front of the lens. Though each photo shoot is a collaborative process between client and photographer, Angela recommends that most shoots take place either before 10 a.m. or in the late afternoon or evening in order to work in the most ideal lighting conditions and allow for the extremely long lunches her camera demands.
